Switzerland Travel Guide

Switzerland has long been one of the world's great tourist destinations. It contains an extraordinary abundance of natural beauties and interesting tourist attractions, and at the same time, in spite of the country's varied geographical pattern and the differences in language, religion and way of life among its inhabitants, offers an admirable example of unity in diversity. The 4000 m/13,000 ft peaks of the High Alps and the lesser summits of the Pre-Alpine regions began to attract the first modern tourists - mainly British - during the 19th c. Since then Switzerland has developed into a Mecca for tourists of every nationality and every age and condition, who find here accommodation to suit every taste from modest to luxurious, modern tourist facilities and a hospitable welcome.
